This in one intensely dirty keyboard, I got mine for $75, and it was the best musical deal that i have ever made. The sounds are a bit limited, but extremely brash and raw. That is why I love my dx 100.

It's a great machine. I usually make bright sounds on it and sample

them in the K2000 for process with the filter (and other tools).You

can make new percussion sounds(not only congas).

I recently bought a DX-100, last week actually. I had one many years ago, back when they first came out, think it was around 1985, and I had no idea what I was doing back then! just some crazy kid wearing it as a guitar making loads of noise!! hahaha but I'm now a drum and bass/techno/hardcore producer and live performing artist, have been since 92.. and I've been hearing more and more FM synthesis, DX sounds used in really minimal electro style tech step harsh dark drum and bass, I've had the DX for just over a week, and already I've messed around creating some awesome digital harsh synth electronic sounds just perfect for drum and bass bass lines, and jeff mills purpose maker style slammin techno....... I think the DX-100 rocks! and I'm glad to have one as part of my kit again!! cheers

When I first bought my DX100, my first FM synth, I thought I'd made a big mistake (well, OK, only $200 big). Not until I got it home did I find that the presets were cheesy, no tweaking made them any more usable, and were thin-sounding to boot. Shortly after that I bought my first reverb (also bottom of the line, the original Alesis Midiverb) and that alone made the difference. I'd set the reverb to an extremely long time, turn the wheel on the back of the unit to 'wet' (100% effect) and then pipe in an otherwise unmusical spitting and cracking sound with the pitch going up and down slightly and slowly via the LFO. Voila! The Midiverb smeared the original sound into a huge waterfall of thick drones and fanfares. I loved it!

Layer, Layer, Layer!!! I put this puppy behind my U-220 and 03/R Bass and EP patches for that good ole phat sound. However, you've got to run it through an efx box of some kind if you want it to sound any good. If you can get it cheap. . . pick it up!
